There are 2 methods by which you can download GIFs and videos from Twitter using this Android app. In the first one, you can provide the Tweet URL in the app to download GIF. In the second method, you need to have the official Twitter app installed on your phone, as you need to share the GIF from it to the Tweet2gif app. After that, you can use this app to download the GIF and save it on your phone.
Let’s now see both of these methods in detail:
Method 1: You can copy the link of the tweet with the GIF you want to download from the Twitter mobile website. Open it on any Android browser and then tap on the “small down arrow” right next to any tweet or GIF tweet. This will bring forth some options, you have to choose “Copy link to Tweet” option to copy the Tweet URL to clipboard.
Now, open Tweet2gif app and paste the copied tweet URL, as shown in the screenshot below. After that, tap on the “Download GIF” button and the GIF will be downloaded to your phone.
The downloaded GIFs are saved in “tweet2gif” folder in the phone storage. This default save folder path can be changed from the app preferences.
Method 2: This method is easier as compared to the first one. But, it can only be used when you have the Twitter app installed on your phone. From the Twitter app, you can share a GIF with this Android app and then use this app to download twitter gif on Android. In order to share a GIF from Twitter app, tap on the “Share” button and then share it to “Tweet2gif”, as shown in the screenshot below.
This will open the app as shown in the screenshot of Method 1. Tap on the “Download GIF” button and your GIF will be saved on your device.
GIF Tweet Downloader:
Gif Tweet Downloader is another free Android app to download Twitter GIF as video. It works in the same way as the previous one. Enter tweet URL of GIF and then download it as a video file (MP4). The only limitation of this app is that you can’t download the Twitter GIFs as GIF files. However, the added advantage of using this app is that you can search for any Twitter user to fetch his/her uploaded videos and then download them one by one from the app.
Install it from the link provided above and then open it. As I mentioned, you need to specify the tweet URL of the GIF to be downloaded. You can copy the tweet link from the Twitter mobile website as explained in the previous app. After that, open it and paste the copied tweet URL in the “Enter URL” field and then hit the “Download” button. This will download the GIF as video from the specified tweet URL. Do note that it also has a “MULTI RESOLUTION” option but I couldn’t figure out its actual purpose.
If you don’t want to copy tweet URL every time you want to download a GIF from Twitter using this app, then you can share that gif with “GIF Tweet Downloader” app, as shown in the screenshot below. This will instantly open the Gif Tweet Downloader, as shown in the screenshot above. Now, you just have to click on the “Download” button to save the Twitter GIF as a MP4 video.
iPhone GIF downloader app:
Gifitize Lite – Twitter GIF Downloader:
Gifitize Lite is a free iPhone Twitter GIF downloader to save GIF from Twitter. It works in the same manner as the Android Twitter GIF downloaders on my list above. However, it doesn’t give you any option to provide a tweet URL to fetch GIF from it. The only way you can download Twitter GIFs using this iPhone app is via the official Twitter iPhone app i.e. share any GIF from the Twitter app to Gifitize. It will then download the shared Twitter GIF to your iPhone. If your iPhone Photos gallery doesn’t support playing GIFs then you can view them within this app or transfer the downloaded GIF files to PC.
Open Twitter iPhone app and start browsing your feed or go to a Twitter handle to download a specific GIF file. When you see the GIF on Twitter you want to download, tap on it to view the gif, and then share the tweet via Gifitize. Do note that when you do it for the first time, you will have to enable the “Gifitize” option in the Activities, as shown below. In order to do this, tap on the “More” option when you see a list of apps to which you can share the tweet and then enable the “Gifitize” option.
Now, you have to share the tweet to Gifitize, which then saves the shared Tweet GIF on your phone, as shown in the screenshot below. The saved GIF file can then be viewed from the iPhone gallery (if your iOS version supports it) or from the app itself.
